Despite the fact that your sister is an attorney and probably does know you best, she is probably not the best person for you to ask for a letter of recommendation.  The Law School review such a letter would probably find it not to be objective or impartial and would look on it negatively as a result.  I would suggest trying to get a letter from a current or former employer or professor and if all else fails, maybe your sister has a colleague or another attorney friend who knows you well that you could use.  Good luck!

It seems easy to understand, you get 4 checkit 4 LOR's let your sis be one, just get the other 3 from nonrelatives, she isnt a proctor so its not taboo. You just dont want ALL family is all. Ask one of her lawyer friends to help write you one too.

When I suggested to my father if he could write a letter of recommendation for me he said, "that is the stupidest thing you ever said," he then went on a long speech about how it was stupid. My uncle is a well respected attorney and went to a top 5 school, but he cannot and will not write a letter for me. The reason being is, you need someone outside of the family pool to write you a letter, one usually comes from an academic setting from a professor who was able to get a feel of you, and another from either a mentor (not apart of the family) or another person in the academic field.
